THE JoCRJiAL has received, during the
past week, a large addition to its stock
of material and we are now prepared to
do as fine a line of commercial printing
as any office in this part of the state.
With new type, Dew press, new ink and
good workmanship at our command we
. feel warranted in saying that we can
five all our patrons entire satisfaction
in the quality of commercial work done
by us. When in need of anything in the
Jine of note heads, letter heads, envel
ppes, statements, checks, blanks, etc.,
call at The Jocrxal office and give us
trial. We shall continue to make The
JOCRSAL the best paper in this part of
the state and slm.ll work for the inter
ests of Harrison and Sioux county.

"Kid" Hawkins, the gambler who
killed a man at Hastings and escaped

Johnstown, N. Y., was visited by a

The supervisors of Seward county
have offered a reward of f 1,000 for the
apprehension of the murderer of the
Leavitt girls, which occurred a few
weeks ago. The case is still as much a
mystery as ever.
The Lincoln Journal states tliat Gov-
Thayer authorizes the statement tliat he
will not be a candidate for a tliird term.
From the reported interview with Con
gressman Dorsey some draw the infer
ence that he aspires to the gorevnor's
chair himself. The foundation for that
belief may come to light later.
The indications are that by the 4th of
July loyO live stars instead of four can
be added to the national flag. The terri
tory of Wyoming is taking active steps
to get ready to put on the mantle of
statehood, and will, no doubt, be ready
so that the proper documents may be
passed by the next session of congress.
It is heped that the city of Lincoln has
at last secured Si supply of good water
sufficient to meet the demands of the
people. With the coming vote on the
prohibitory amendmeut approaching the
people of the capital city became desper
ate, for it would be impossible to live
and drink nothing but the abomnable
prater Lincoln has had in the past.
The republicans of Dawes county are
already getting into line for the coming
fll campaign. A meeting of the repub
ijican county central committee and party
workers was held a few days ago and
steps taken for a short, active campaign,'
and the convention will not be nntil late
in the season. The republicans of Dawes
county have level heads.
The levy made by the village board
aggregating 28 mills on the dollar valu

have taxes to pay in the village inti

Last week the Omaha Herald was sold
to O. M. Hitchcock of the Omaha World.
The purchase price was 40,000. It is
evident tliat John A. McSlmne's experi
ence in the newspaper business has not
been as satisfactory as he expected it
would. He has neither, made himself rich
put of the enterprise nor did he find it of
enough influence to induce the people to
elect him to the governorship of Nebraska.

Walt Mason, who lias presided over
the "Topics" column of the Lincoln
Journal for a long time has severed his
connection with that paper and will now
use his ability to make the Cull more in

purugraphers in the wot and should he

he would make his mark high up in the
rucord of journalism.

ers have joined in
new schedule of
rates for the publication of land no
tices. Owing to the increasing size of
the final proof notice now required by
the department, they have decided to
raise the rate on them to $7.."0 for sin
gle, and on consolidated $7.50 for first
and S-'i.OO for each additional. The price
on contest notices remains the same.
Mawpin, the man and desperado recent
ly arrested in Brown county, was riddle
wan uuiieis last, rsauiruay nigiil, while
in his cell at Bassett. A band of vi
lantes did the work. They overpowered
the sheriff, battered down the jail door
and when they reached the cell occupied
by Maupin one of the mob fired a shot at
him and this proved the signal of genera
shooting. It is probable that death
would liave been the prisoner's doom had
the law been allowed to take its course.
